NCAA Football: Ohio State Spring Game Greg Bartram-USA TODAY Sports

Now that Joe Burrow is off to LSU, we know for certain that Dwayne Haskins is Ohio State’s starting quarterback for the 2018 season. While we’ve already seen what Haskins can do in limited action —including a sweet comeback in The Game— it’s still a bit of a mystery as to how Co-Offensive Coordinators Kevin Wilson and Ryan Day will tailor the Buckeyes’ offense to Haskins’ unique skillset.

On this episode of The Hangout in the Holy Land, Colton Denning and Patrick Mayhorn try to envision what that might look like, wonder how Burrow will do at LSU, and more, including:

  • Haskins giving Ohio State its most diverse offensive attack since 2014. (And if you haven’t already, go check out Patrick’s excellent article about his strengths, and how they relate to the Buckeyes’ offensive concepts.
  • Why J.K. Dobbins and Mike Weber stand to benefit the most from Haskins winning the job.
  • Tate Martell getting use in sub-packages, and whether they’re comfortable with him as the backup.

The guys also talk about Shea Patterson being declared eligible for Michigan, whether Jim Harbaugh can actually still develop QBs, the series with Texas being pushed back, and Craig Krenzel fighting children.
